Osborn Shoes – artist edition oxfords
The mission at Osborn Shoes is to do good with good design. Osborn offers a unique collection of handmade footwear cultivated with positivity, hope and dedication. Co-founder Aaron Osborn, whose family runs one of the largest orphanages in Guatemala, stumbled upon the idea for Osborn in 2007 when he met an out-of-work cobbler while doing charitable work in the country.
He and co-founder, Carla Osborn, were searching for a way to combine humanitarian efforts with a fashion project. This search led to Osborn Shoes. That first cobbler still works with them full time, as do a small driven team of 30 gifted artisans. All the materials for each shoe are individually hand-cut and each shoe is assembled by hand.
Osborn Shoes have just launched their first ever artist edition shoes. These Justine Ashbee Oxfords are crafted by hand, with cotton upper silkscreened in limited edition artist run by Justine Ashbee. 1″ stacked leather heel with recycled tire heel cap. Fairly made. $148.00 USD. Ships everywhere.
